Don't forget but The Abode Of Life had Kirk and Spock holding The Cage-era lasers on the cover which was really odd...
Those weren't Cage
-style lasers, but a generic sci-fi raygun design. Presumably the cover artist had no photo reference for phasers and just made something up. Again, remember, it wasn't as easy back then to come by photo reference for any given detail from Star Trek
I'm not sure he made the design up... it's always looked to me like a Sonic Fazer
, a toy from the 1970s.
